Our country has always depended on the innovation, hard work, and optimism of immigrants from around the globe. Our broken immigration system has threatened that legacy by creating barriers to entrepreneurship.

A functioning system will promote the American Dream, facilitating opportunities for both new immigrants and those already here to fully participate in our economy.
